Please tell Good phone for a modder?
I guess it depends what you want to mod. Are you looking for theming only or do you want to change the firmware?
Hi, thanks for the response, I'm looking for a phone that has a good development community and is easily locked, unlocked, rooted, unrooted, etc.
Google's phone ... Nexus and Pixel would be top choices. Samsung, just because they are so ubiquitous would also have a big development community, but you have to get past their security.
OnePlus 3 and the later models have good development communities. Avoid low end phones that you'd typically see on a prepaid network. Those usually have very little to no dev support.
Don't get a ZTE Zmax Pro, it's the most locked down phone on the planet!
Avoid Carrier branded devices if possible, especially AT&T and Verizon. Locked bootloaders.
nexus, pixel, oneplus....
head over to xda-developers.com and have a look at what the cool kids are playing with these days...
